Consumer Reports' answer to high food prices - REVISION

UPDATE to BELOW:
I originally read this to mean that Consumer Reports was advocating pesticide consumption, but really what the article meant was "focus on the ones (organic vegetables) that are more likely to contain these chemicals had you decided to buy non-organic." So people aren't as crazy as previously thought (but still crazy).

"If you’re strapped for cash, ... [prioritize] your produce purchases. Skip the fruits and vegetables that tend to have little or no pesticide residue and focus on the ones that are more likely to contain these chemicals (pesticides)."

Are you sure you are reading that right? Seems to me that CR is saying that certain types of fruits and vegetables absorb more pesticides, and with a limited budget those are the ones to spend extra on to get organic.

I had to read it twice, but you are absolutely right I completely read that wrong. I guess people aren't THAT crazy.

Hello, I like your blog very much. I think that it is very important to stand your consumer rights. You never know when and what company is going to offend you and you have to know what to do in case you have some misunderstandings with a retailer or any other company. It is also very useful to read Consumer Reports to get to know other people’s experience in this or that situation.

Oh, a great blog. It is so interesting and rather informative. There is something I would like to say about consumer reports. Whoever started that is a genius. They do work. One thing when people claim to their relatives or friends and it is completely different when this or that problem is made public. There is this great site www.pissedconsumer.com. There you may find hundreds or maybe even thousands of consumer reports about almost every company.
